I did a search on cocatalog.loc.gov and there is no renewal, just the original registration. What further steps are needed to determine if the film is in the public domain?

The film was renewed:


Secret of the Incas.
Type of Work: Entry not found.
Registration Number / Date: RE0000136793 / 1982-09-10
Renewal registration for: LP0000003990 / 1954-06-01
Title: Secret of the Incas.
Copyright Claimant: Paramount Pictures Corporation (PWH)

Names: Paramount Pictures Corporation

The numbers for the original registration and the renewal match out. For some reason the online database record for renewal doesn't list the work as a motion picture, so it doesn't come up if you limit your search to movies.
